Pranam Champakji,

Hello, generally during shraddha all new undertakings or auspicious things are prohibited, does this apply to conceiving of a child also?

My question is pertaining to the period of 15 days which is called shraddha, in this year it starts from 28th or 29th of this month, if parents want to conceive children, does shastra prohibit them to conceive children in this period. Because during shraddha usually people are told not to start anything new.

By shraddha i mean not only this whole 15 days ,but also specifics days of father or father in law.

pRANaam PVAF visitor:
 
Please visit the following veda page on the PVAF web site for knowing what a person does and does do as ordained and prescribed by veda and shaastra: 
 
 
As you will read on the above page one of the activities prohibited is:
  •  having sex on the day previous to the day of offering SHRaaDHDH and also on the day of offering SHRaaDHDH by the person who are offering shraadh and
  • the same rule is to be followed by the persons who are participating in offering SHRaaDHDH.
  • the paap (sin) incurred by those who would have sex on both the days as indicated above is equivalent to bRHm-htyaa meaning killing of a braahman.  

And the above applies to offering SHRaaDHDH for father or father-in-law......The above rules tells us that one should not attempt conceiving if one is offering SHRaaDHDH - on the day of offering and also on the day previous to the offering......

If one is not offering any SHRaaDHDH during the 15 days of both sud and vad of bhaadarvo month then one should not worry about the above rule....The offering of SHRaaDHDH on each of the fifteen days to various persons is outlined in the following PVAF veda web page:
 
 
A general rule from the above would be:
  • during the vad (dark fortnight) 15 days of bhaadarvo month then one should not plan to conceive during those 15 days starting from the last day of the previous fortnight....and
  • if one is targeting specific to one's death anniversary of father or grandfather then one should not plan to conceive on the day prior to and on the day of offering SHRaaDHDH on the death anniversary....
Please visit the other articles on SHRaaDHDH on the veda page of PVAF web site which are under the following title and at the following address:
 
Rites and Rituals: Vedik prescription to keep the mutually beneficial interrelation of gods and humans going
 
I trust the above answers your basic question...if you still have more questions please feel free to ask.....

nmskaar and pray bhagvaan will guide you and inspire you to live by the rules of veda and shaastra and also guide you and inspire you to inspire others to do same in this kli-yug when most humans  do not make efforts to live by DHARm and thus suffer the pain of apuANy way of life .....
